“no pun intended” (by brunk)
A homerecorded DIY mishmash of old tracks (recorded between 1999 and 2005), quiet songs, homerecorded weirdo pop instrumentals, noisy stuff, little redundant experiments, lo-fi nonsense, kitch, guitars, samples, electronica etc.: leftovers galore!
A loose collection of B-sides without A-sides... 5 totally non-cohesive 4-track ep's thrown on one disc without much thinking or reason... that's 'a simple guide'! Enjoy this rough audioguide through different and sometimes forgotten corners of brunkville! :-)
This release is also available on CD-r with printed artwork: it can be purchased for 5 euro (+shipping) on http://brunk.bandcamp.com/album/a-simple-guide .
(Flac, AAC, Ogg Vorbis and ALAC versions of this release are also available there).
